Lincoln Park’s traffic situation is about to get a whole lot worse starting Monday, March 19th. The Fullerton Avenue bridge construction project begins then, lasting until the beginning of next summer, 2013. My advice: avoid the Fullerton & Lake Shore drive area at all costs, and if you’re travelling on the Drive, make sure you are using the inner most lanes. There’s bound to be added traffic in the outer lanes with cars exiting.
Here’s more on the project and what it will entail, and a picture of what the new overpass will look like (courtesy of CDOT):
